Pink Bowtique - Glamour for Little Girls

As some might know, my Z has a puff. An adorable near-afro puff of springy black curls and I love to doll her up with ribbons and bows, but I have to admit, some bows have met a tragic fate at the hands of my lovely one-year old. She can cause some serious fabric fraying and can make something about bows just not sit right on the little clippy.

Well we just received some bows from Pink Bowtique and they have survived my Zettle-Z. When the package came in the mail, my hubby opened them up and said, "Oh, these are cute." and that's alot coming from the man that believes pink is a semi-nauseating color. And they are cute, well-made, the ends are heat sealed, so no fraying, and don't fall off the band.

These, headband bows, are on my list of gifts for mommies of little girls.

Stroller Strides - Try a class

The other afternoon on Yummy Mummy, they featured a stroller class and now that Z is out of the sling and carrier and a full-time stroller baby, I thought that this would be something cool to look into.

So I got in the google mode and found Stroller Strides, and by the look of things, lots of other area Mommies have gotten the word about stroller fitness, there are 12 different locations just in the DC area -- everywhere from Arlington to Union Station to Gaithersburg. Also, also on their really user-friendly site, is a really neat deal. Try a free class, usually single classes run $15, but they are offering this program to get the word out and let women try it out.

My Z and I just signed up and we will try one of the upcoming Saturday classes, probably at the Union Station location. We'll write an update and let y'all know how it all comes out.

Stork Magazine and Runway Moms

While I was pregnant with my Z, I loved catching Runway Moms on Discovery Health. Runway Moms is a 30-minute show telling the story of Expecting Models, an agency specializing in pregnant and nursing models, by profiling a model mom-to-be through her pregnancy and into the early days of life at home. It was such fun and a great way to learn tips and tidbits while being wonderfully entertained.

Now, Runway Moms is just starting season 2 and it's full of great new stories. But Liza at Expecting Models has a great new baby as well, Stork Magazine, a fun e-zine that supplements Runway Moms, with great info and fabulous mom-prenuer profiles (see section Moms We Love).
